I rated it because it's a marvelous achievement.
How did you do it?
How did you track the station?

Kind of "limited" transportation:

Thanks. Well the ISS moves across the sky at a gentle constant rate so it's easier than you think. Just find it in the viewfinder and track it. Also the IS of the 100-400 works wonders.

Hi Peter

Old Pier at Swanage with Isle of Wight in back ground? I like it to Very Happy

Well, I'm gonna give it another try with a race car. Y'all must not like fast red cars or something. How about purple?

This is a March 83G that I photographed at the last IMSA race at Riverside International Raceway before the track was torn down for a housing development Sad That would make it 1986.

Taken on Riverside's famed back straight, this Porsche-powered March was doing 200+ mph (320+ kph) as it sped by my location. Canon F-1, Tamron SP 60-300 f/3.8-5.4, Kodachrome 64, exposure unrecorded.

Nice shot, Gordon! The afterburner pulses are always cool. Especially nice to see that you took that shot with a Tamron 60B. I used to have one of those lenses, and loved it. Got some nice air show pics I took with it also. I'll have to dig around for some . . .
